Mark yon fair sail, fanned by the gale,

From love's soft wooing sighs ;
Like a moon-lit haze, mid the blue of heaven,

O'er the dimpled stream she flies ;
Ah! who but prays for the wand of power,

To bid that vision stay ?
But see, down the dark, returnless wave,

She hath passed in her light away!

And now a bark comes rushing on,

With the sweep of manly pride ;
Sails set, and banners streaming-far,

As dangers were defied;
Hark! he, who holds the helm, doth shout

That glory's shore is won-
But an eddying whirl the bark hath caught,

Down, down the gulph 'tis gone!

And thus earth's thronging millions pour

Their hope-built barks along; VOL. 11.-NO. I.

The timid only coast the shore ;

The bold, in ardor strong,
Rush down the stream with sounding cheers,

And claim the victor's crown;
Yet alike in that gulph of buried years,

They sink together down.

And few there be, that sinking leave

One circle on the wave,
For memory's eye to invest with light,

The halo of the grave;
Down sinks their freight-gold, rank and power,

Pride, passions, worldly cares !
And not a wreck of all the pomp,

Time's stream on its bosom bears.

Yet bubbles, rainbow tinted, rise

When Genius yields his breath;
And upborne on the foam, will float awhile

The hero's crimson wreath ;
But earth's gift, that ne'er sinks, is the glorious leaf,

Gathered from Liberty's tree,
And charmed with the patriot's holy name,

By the blessings of the free!

But few that glorious gift may win

Yet heaven's immortal crown,
Its pure effulgence borroweth not

From the lustre of earth's renown
And if Bethlehem's Star our course but guide,

While down Time's stream we're driven,
Oh! the gulph of buried years, will wear

The light of our crown in heaven!
